. >> well, vice-president joe biden met with gun rights groups and safety activists and when the president laid out his gun control plan there was barely any mention of curbing the violence in movies. >> alisyn: there's more work to be done. our next guest says, no. and joining us-- >> good morning, how are you. >> alisyn: is that accurate you don't think that the president has to do more about the video game industry or hollywood? >> no, i think the president actually promised that he would have a broad response. he would have broad actions, i think actually, what he did was breach that promise when you have 23 executive actions and no meaningful action regarding hollywood, and very little regarding this just stunning. hollywood is a huge campaign source and was during the the campaign. we all remember the record breaking, it was the biggest campaign event in history, 15 million dollars, the george clooney dinner and also, hollywood is one of the biggest lobbyists in washingt washington, as a matter of fact, their chief lobbyist is chris dodd from connecticut where the newtown massacre o

for girls? and the mother who lost her son to gun violence twice. first, want to know what joe biden plans to do about the guns? me, too. i'm going to ask his son. good morning. i'm m i i'm melissa harris-perry. biden's report to the president comes a week after meetings in search of some common ground among all the sides of the gun control debate. the usual suspects, firearm retailers including a reluctant walmart, gun violence survivors who shared their firsthand experiences, gun control proponents and gun control opponents pushing for expanded rights. the de facto leader of that opposition, the national rifle association issued a statement after their sit-down with the vice president. their solution? to dig in deeper on the all guns all the time ideology and put armed guards in every american school. the nra promises to marshall their formidable, political and financial resources to fight any new reforms every step of the way. they will do so with the support of allies in congress, most notably republicans on the house committee who continue to propose limits on assault weapons. no surp

. >>> there he is joe biden taking the oath of office this morning and not far from here in fact over at the naval observatory, and a twist of historic irony perhaps the country's first black president's public swearing is going to happen on the same day that we honor one of america's great civil rights activists, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr.

spoken of this. not going to back off on it. whereas some of us thought frankly watching joe biden and talking to people around a this task force that he was not going to go there, when this gets reported to the president, very quickly, by the end of this month, he is going to take some very big steps. it is a fight he wants to take on clearly. they may not get it. the politics aren't there yes. but he is going to at least engage congress on. >> i have a couple of minutes and a couple things want to get to quickly. first of all, for you, mayor booker, you are taking on some of these big debates and might take them on in the senate. you filed your papers to run for the senate in new jersey to take on a senator lautenberg. is that what you intend to do? will you run? >> again, you have to file the papers even to do research on the issue, even to travel on the issue. so, we are complying with the law before we do any exploration of the senate run. we have got to file an account. that is my intention. it is over a year away. a lot is going to change between now and then. >> senator lau

that are hard because they're the right things to do. >> the president will be joined by vice president joe biden who presented his task force recommendations monday. also joining the president tomorrow will be children who wrote letters to the white house after the deadly shooting at sandy hook elementary school just over a month ago. and this pivotal moment comes as more americans are calling for stricter gun laws. a new "washington post" post shows 52% of people believe the shooting at sandy hook has made them more supportive of gun control. the latest pew survey shows big support for universal background checks and preventing gun sales to the mentally ill. broad backing for a federal gun database and the banning of semiautomatic weapons. so why is it that even the suggestion of such measures is provoking such fear and trembling from conservative quarters? possible executive action such as limiting gun imports, sharing mental health records, and, heaven forbid, researching the public health impact of guns have led this congressman, steve stockman, of texas to threat be impeachment if the

president joe biden reminded us that this administration can and will continue to think big. >> i think we're on the cusp of doing great things. >> regardless of what he wanted to focus on in his first term back in 2009, the biggest challenge awaiting our new president was economy and free fall and big achievement for the auto industry and bringing the economy back from the brink. with unemployment where it was after republicans have the white house dragged out in debates like marginal interest rates and crises like the debt ceiling, we are left wondering, when it comes to the economy can the president do big things? washington post columnist ezra klein is an msnbc policy analyst and editor for "the washington post." hi, e.j. and rezra. nice to be in d.c. and be with you guys. are there big things left to do on the economy or are we twin kerring with the tax code? >> we are going to be blinding out a series of big things. this is going to be the tough thing about it. in the first term, what you have is big things that eventually over a long period of time happen at once. president obama sa

begin by thanking our vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisible. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children, and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some unexpected people, in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids, four of them are here today, grant fritz, julia stokes, hina ziha and teja good. they're pretty representative of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart, young people. hina, a third grader, you can go ahead and wave hina, that's you. hina wrote, "i feel terrible for the parents who l
